Where is Nancy Drew filmed? The Claw restaurant location in Horseshoe Bay

Nancy Drew filming location
Posted by
The Nancy Drew series is a new adaptation based on the stories of the adventurous character created by Edward Stratemeyer in 1930. The CW Network production develops the story of a murder mystery, that 18-year-old Nancy (played by young actress Kennedy McMann) will try to solve.

This updated version of the detective girl is not set in the fictional nowhere town of River Heights (although Nancy's house street is River Heights Dr). The series is happening in the atmospheric Horseshoe Bay in Maine, although Nancy Drew was filmed in Horseshoe Bay, British Columbia, and Vancouver. Obviously the new show has been influenced by the universe and the filming locations where Riverdale is filmed.

The Claw Restaurant Location
The lobster shack The Claw was filmed in an empty restaurant at Sunset Marina, located on the Sea to Sky Highway. The small lighthouse was added to the set. This road that goes all the way from Vancouver to Whistler, is a scenic drive with stunning views over the Spectacular Howe Sound.

  1. Is The Claw restaurant from the Nancy Drew 2019 tv series the same location as Boathouse Grill from The Secret Circle 2011 tv series?

    1. Good catch. There are some differences but it looks like it is. I couldn't find an exact address other than both are listed as properties in Sunset Marina.

  2. I have been wondering if they were the same location for the past few episodes and I found a page with some pictures of it. https://thesecretcircle.fandom.com/wiki/Boathouse_Bar_and_Grill

  3. It is the same location. I’ve been to this marina many times and watched the circle but didn’t even realized until I saw these pictures

  4. I am Security for Sunset Marina, the Film Location of The Bayside Claw. Let it be known, this is PRIVATE PROPERTY. So if anyone assumes that they are going to come down and take pictures of the film location, think again.. The owners of the marina do not allow it.

  5. Why pretend they are in Maine & really in Canada?
